Is Apple asleep at the wheel on the MacBook Air?

Apple’s latest MacBook Air refresh thoroughly underwhelmed many analysts. Speculation suggested that a new 12-inch model might replace both the 11-inch and 13-inch versions, and common sense made an upgrade to Retina resolution seem inevitable.

Cloak is the social network designed to help you avoid ‘friends’

Cloak is the social network designed to help you avoid ‘friends’

As social networks become more prominent, integrating into every facet of our lives, we’ve started to outgrow some of the labels the services use. “Friends” is a term used broadly by these networks in situations that we wouldn’t necessarily use it. Co-workers, acquaintances from high school, and friends of friends who we met at a party once and they drunkenly insisted we connect with them make up a healthy chunk of “friends.” And that virtual link makes it easier for those people to approach us in real life, regardless our wishes. Cloak is an app that makes it as easy to avoid them in real life as it is online.

Cloak’s functionality is made possible thanks to the liberal online definition of friendship. Because you, like the rest of us, have at some point made the mistake of adding people you really have no interest in communicating with on networks designed for communication, you now have the information Cloak needs to make sure you never run into those people. It connects with Foursquare and Instagram and pulls location data from your connections to show who’s nearby. Users can flag people they want to avoid and Cloak will provide an alert if that person shows up within a defined radius.

Report: Google is testing a complete redesign of Web-based Gmail

Report: Google is testing a complete redesign of Web-based Gmail

Detailed by Geek.com recently, the development team that works on Gmail is internally testing a simplified layout of the Web-based version. With more similarities to the mobile interface, the new Web interface, as seen in the screenshots, has been created with responsive design in mind. For those that are unfamiliar, responsive design mean that a site will automatically position elements on the screen based off the screen size. Basically, someone viewing the interface on a 1080p 24-inch monitor or a 10-inch tablet will have the same experience.

On the left side of the screen, Google appears to be transitioning to “fly-in” menus to select different folders or various inboxes. On the right side of the screen, Google has added a quick access menu at the bottom to quickly start an email as well as a Hangouts option at the top to launch into chat with an email contact. In the middle of the screen, Google has positioned all recent emails. The additional width of this layout will likely allow for longer subject lines. Oddly, there doesn’t seem to be a position for Google Adsense in this layout, a element of the current Gmail interface.
